Poll: My Bloody Valentine 3D
I was unexpectedly overtaken by a bout of glee over "My Bloody Valentine 3D" at work today. It was very unexpected since I'm not into slasher films and had been kind of neutral except for the "Oh cool, Jensen's in a movie that might actually make it to my hometown theatre and video store" factor. However, today I am suffused with glee so here, have a (longish) poll.

No spoilers please! Guessing and hoping only! :-D

i hate horror/gore films yet i am so excited about going to see this. i got the day off work so i can watch it during daylight hours with paleogymnast i want to see jensen but i might still have my hands over my eyes for half the film, so i'll probably have to sit through another viewing of it... :D

Dude, I got a ticket for the special showing Thursday night!! **GLEE** I am going to be SO worthless at work on Friday, but I totally don't care.
caffienekitty From: caffienekitty Date: January 10th, 2009 05:18 am (UTC) (Link)
Cool! How'd you swing that? Is it a midnight showing, or are you going to the movie instead of watching the new episode of Supernatural that night? *flails at you*

I'm not into slasher movies, and I don't like gore, but I'll be at the earliest showing on Friday that I can get to. Trying to get the afternoon off, so maybe the theater won't be too crowded. Don't know any other SPN fans in the area, so I'm going alone. Happy to see I'm not the only one hoping for naked :) I think there'd be so much potential for that in 3D.

It's astounding the things being a fan of something/someone makes us do, eh? :-D

*boggles* HAHAHAHAHA! Oh lordy! I didn't even think of the 3D! Hee! *facepalm*

3-D

Hey there
Lurking Wombat here to tell you that the new system of 3-D totally rocks!!!
Journey to the Center of the Earth was in 3-D and i saw it 3 times in the theatre. The glasses were cool and the effects blew me away!!
That said, there is no way i will see MBV3D in the theatre. I can't do horror films as they bother me way to much and the Supernatural connection isn't there as i have still only seen sporadic episodes. Sorry C-Kitty :(
But the effects are fantastic!! Waiting for Lucas to re-do Star Wars in the new 3-D style and then i WILL see that in the theatre
Lurking Wombat (who knows the answer to that classic question:
3-D or not 3-D? That is the question.

Re: 3-D

Cool! So the theatres in your area can do the 3-d if the local one by me can't? Good to know. :-)

I can't do horror films as they bother me way to much and the Supernatural connection isn't there as i have still only seen sporadic episodes. Sorry C-Kitty :(

Totally understand. If I wasn't an obsessed nutbag and wanted to see what Jensen Ackles will do with the role, I'd be waiting to rent too. As to the only seeing sporadic episodes, well, we'll have to see about that. It really is best watched from the start.

But the effects are fantastic!! Waiting for Lucas to re-do Star Wars in the new 3-D style and then i WILL see that in the theatre

...hm. Double-edged sword, that. I like the original best, didn't like the CGI additions, and it kind of scares me what might get changed in a 3D version. And the less said about Jar-Jar and his tongue the better. :-P

so I'm the 'ewwwww, not going to see it ever!!' because Jensen is Jensen, but gore is gore and ya.... :D

and I was very good and restrained myself from the 'naked' option :D (you are soooooo cruel! :D)

I'm kind of surprised that I'm having as few qualms as I am about going to see this. I don't do slasher films at all, especially not in a no-pausing situation, but I've heard a tiny bit about the movie and I'm very curious to see what he does with the role. Also, given that I've voluntarily watched 'Devour' several times, my tolerance levels for everything go up considerably for movies where Jensen Ackles is playing a character. So, yeah, I'll see it in the theatre. Buuuut I'll probably be going by myself and sitting with my back to a nice solid wall. :-)

I don't know if I'll do a detailed report on MBV3D (hard to do one without being able to refer back to the source material) but I'll probably post something when I do get to see it, so I'll see if I can include a gore report. I doubt it will be gorier than "Time Is On My Side" though.

Now, when the Friday the 13th remake comes out with Jared.... I'm not sure on that one yet. It's smack in the middle of hell season at work, so I may not get the option of going to see it anyway. :-/

and I was very good and restrained myself from the 'naked' option :D (you are soooooo cruel! :D)

I try to be equal-opportunity when making polls. *nods* ;-D

As alot of your commenters, I also am not a fan of gore. Which really, how ironic being an obsessed fan of SPN and not liking gore. Anyway, I'm trying to find a thetre that will play it in 3d by me. It is proving difficult. Is an IMAX thetre guaranteed to play 3d? Cause then the closest one I have is 34 miles away. And I'll go to it. I swear I will!

Squee

So, I saw a trailer for this when J and Wombat and I went to see The Spirit(which is brilliant). I agree that the 3d technology is astounding, and I am considering going by myself just because, well, it is Jensen and I am a hopeless nutter..lol I clapped my hands in glee when I saw the trailer *cough*. I have been watching horror since I was a kid--gore and all, and while I am not a huge fan of the gore genre, it will be worth it just for the obvious reasons. I never though of the other aspects of 3D and Jensen *huge innocent eyes*. Actually, I hadn't..but I am sure the gutter in my brain would have caught up eventually..lol So after all this rambling--I may see it just to squee by myself in a darkened theatre--I will try to control the laughter and flailing but sitting farrr in the back:P

Re: Squee

It's showed up on TV a few times and I've flailed every time. Especially when it's on channels other than CW.

I may see it just to squee by myself in a darkened theatre--I will try to control the laughter and flailing but sitting farrr in the back:P

Yeah, that's about the size of it for me too. It'll be the first movie of this type I've seen in a theatre, I think. And by 'this type' I don't mean 3D. :-)

Oh I know, and it doesn't make you a bad fangirl at all!

I've never liked slasher movies either. I haven't seen any of the Halloween/Friday the 13th/Nightmare franchises, at all. However, from what little I know, MBV has a bit of a 'whodunnit' air to the plot. Even that might not normally be enough to get me into a theatre to see it, but add Jensen in a major role? I'll make an exception. :-)

I made the same exception for "Ten Inch Hero". I do not like romantic comedies. At all. I find them insipid, boring and pointless unless there's zombies in them or some sci-fi or fantasy element or a non-social puzzle involved. But I took part of my extremely limited vacation time, spent over a hundred bucks all told to go see "Ten Inch Hero" when there was a showing within a feasible distance. I didn't regret seeing the movie because it showed a different facet to Jensen's abilities as an actor.

Jared's movie is a bit more of a hard sell for me to see in the theatre because I'm not (yet) as much of a fan of Jared's acting as I am of Jensen's, and Jared's movie has no element of 'whodunnit'. No puzzle to solve, just the traditional slasher formula, gore and screaming. Also, it's coming from an already well-known franchise of movies, and will likely have a moderate to decent box office presence. I'll probably wait for DVD.

I'm definitely not trying to shift you from your stance on the movie, just explaining why I'm going to see it. It's so out-of-character for me to be this excited over this type of movie, I'm kind of shaking my head in amazement. :-D

I'm either making my big sister go with me, or my two cousins who don't get scared at ANYTHING. They were watching Alien at three years old, so this movie shouldn't bother them.

I was ambivalent about it for the longest time, but something just tipped me over into "hell yeah I'm going!" territory yesterday. Not having the capacity to pause the movie will suck, but I don't think it'll mess with my head too much. But we'll see! :-D

Whoo hooo!

I just wanted to tell you that MBV here at my theatre(across the road even), so I will have to go sometime soon. I don't know how long it will last. Which means it could be headed your way soon then;) I think I will almost get up early to see the Metropolitan Opera's production of "Damnation of Faust" by Berlioz too, but I know, I have very strange taste:P It's Berlioz, modern take with giant screens, so ya know. Anway, just wanted to let you know MBV is on the island.

Hugs

Re: Whoo hooo!

I'm going to have to hope no one spoils me for it and wait until next week to see it, I think. My work schedule has officially gone to hell. :-P
